This research utilizes DTI and graph theory to provide a method for monitoring the progression of structural stroke recovery at 21.1 T. Edema that occurs for multiple days post the initial ischemic limits the ability for tractography to be used for any meaningful connectivity analysis before day 5. After this initial phase, graph theory provides metrics for determining the progression of recovery in major white matter regions of the ischemic brain. This method could be utilized as a means for determining the efficacies of different treatments compare with standard stroke recovery.
